OKLAHOMA CITY — Bodycam footage from the Penn Square Mall shooting in Oklahoma City shows a chaotic scene as police responded, according to KFOR in Oklahoma City.

In December 2019, on a Thursday afternoon, as shoppers were getting their last minute shopping completed prior to the holiday season, a man opened fire at the Penn Square Mall.

The body cam footage shows officers pulling up after reports of gunshots.
